The Wonderful People That Support Us
The Benefits Of Being A Friend Of The Mike Serba Tourney
We’ve been blessed to have a wonderful group of people who support The Mike Serba Memorial Golf Tournament. These great supporters include golfing participants, volunteers, people who donate prizes & gifts and our sponsors.
A few years ago; just a few weeks prior to our tournament date, we found out that we had lost our sponsor for a hole-in-one car prize. The news was a real blow. This prize has always been an important part of the overall experience of the event and there wasn’t much time left to make other arrangements. As it happened, I was picking up some prizes from a good friend of mine; Mathew Yustin, the Director of Golf at Lambton Golf and Country Club and mentioned our plight to him. Matt said he would introduce me to a super and generous person who was at that time the principle owner of Queensway Audi ……. David Green. Queensway Audi stepped into the breach and provided an Audi A8 as a prize and they have continued to support us every year since that time by supplying a hole-in-one car prize.
I remember my first visit to Queensway Audi to meet Dave Green’s daughter Karen to thank her for their support and for stepping up with their help at the last minute. It didn’t take but a few seconds to understand what this place was all about. Just the way I was greeted at reception and observing a salesperson interact with a lady that had recently purchased a car was all that was needed to confirm the quality of this place and witness a culture dedicated to a high level of customer service. While the Green family has sold the business, their support and our connection to Queensway Audi continues.
I have always encouraged “friends” of our tournament to visit our Sponsors page and make use of the services that our sponsors provide. In part it’s to support our sponsors for their generosity; but it’s also because I know that these are quality people who do a really great job; especially for “friends” of the tournament.
Just last week, Mike Sheridan called me about a friend of the tournament who’s soon to be son-in-law was interested in purchasing an Audi. I called Dugald (Doug) Ramsey General Manager for the past 30 years at Queensway and an appointment was made for Artur and the soon to be son-in-law Rafael to meet with Phil Steadman the New Car Sales Manager. (By the way, I found out afterwards that Phil is married to the lovely and charming Karen Green.)
To make a long story short, Mike Sheridan called just shortly after the visit by Artur and Rafael. Rafael bought an Audi A4 that day. Mike told me that Artur just had to call him and couldn’t say enough about their great experience at Queensway Audi.
